Outfit of the Day: 'Rosy Posy'







What I'm Wearing: Roses vest: Topshop, green swing jacket: Thrifted, red mary jane heels: Next

The matching necklace and earrings set I'm wearing here, were a gift from my Dad bought back from his holidays in Lanzarote. It was a really sweet and thoughtful present, as the stone it is made from is called Peridot and he had enquired about it and wrote me a little note taking information from his guide book about the semi-precious stone. This is what the guide book stated:

"Peridot: A semi-precious stone that is also called Olivine, and ranges in colour from olive to lime green. It is the August birthstone and is believed to bring good luck. Peridot necklaces and bracelets are sold all over the island of Lanzarote. The stones used to be called Evening Emeralds, and it is said that the crusaders who found them around the Red Sea, believed they were Emeralds and brought them back home to adorn churches. Found in volcanic lava."

Another little interesting fact about the stones, is that they are cold to the touch whatever the weather, due to their volcanic heritage!
